With a 360-degree hydraulically operated rotating turret assembly, Felling's FT-14-2 R Turret can lock into any position when the directional control valve is released. The hydraulic payout/take-up assembly is a sealed gear driven unit. Keeping repair work to a minimum, there are no chains or sprockets to break or wear out. The drive unit is smooth and quiet to operate and easily engages and disengages from the reel bar. Not only does it payout and retrieve, but it also has optional hydraulic braking capabilities. Hydraulic brake tensioning eliminates the heat generated by traditional caliper and rotor. This reduces line gallop and allows for a longer tensioning duration. The generated heat is absorbed in the hydraulic oil and dissipated by the oil cooler.
The hydraulic tensioning feature can be used in overhead conductor installation and replacement.
The FT-14-2 R comes standard with an onboard hydraulic power supply and a Honda GX 390 gas engine with electric start and recoil backup. The power pack is equipped with a 25-gallon hydraulic reservoir with a hydraulic oil return filter and lockable theft-resistant enclosure. The FT-14-2 R Turret is rated for 2,250 psi continuous and 2,900-psi max and provides 8 gpm.
